The president of Deloitte Spain, Fernando Ruiz, was the first to take the floor and said that the recovery should not generate inequality between countries as in the previous crisis. It has highlighted that Spain is one of the least aid dedicated to companies in relation to GDP-11% – as the majority (10%) are guarantees and warranties, and only 1% funds without return. “It’s giving more support to households to businesses, and we must not forget that these are the job creators”.
Fernando Ruiz added that “it is essential to support liquidity, smes, self-employed persons, ERTE and attract foreign investment, as well as the implementation of tax incentives”. On the labour market has said that “we must go forward, not backward”.
The president of Accenture Spain, Sunday, Voyeur , has stated that it is necessary “a plan of reinvention of Spain” and that we cannot aspire to stay “in the middle”, for what there is to strengthen sectors such as industry and digital technologies.
In this sense, has said that there is to undertake plans of digitization in the public sector, in smes and to invest in critical infrastructure, all of this “with proper regulation”.
On the current problems of our economy, has highlighted that “has many activities in which required the physical presence of the client, the public employment (one out of every five of the total) has little contribution to GDP, smes account for 65% of GDP, ranked 11 in the index scan over 28 countries, and we have a labour market is rigid in comparison with other countries”.
The chairman of E&Y Spain, Federico Linares , has made a simile with the sea -“you already know that I am of Cadiz”- and has said that “we are in the midst of a storm in which the entrepreneurs we form a Spanish armada that seeks the well-being and recovery econóica”.
he has Also said that the crisis “is not funded with taxes, but with debt; there is no economic capacity to tax, and cannot be retracted rents to families and businesses.” He added that “we need regulatory stability, predictability, stimulus measures and tax deferment of taxes”. He has underlined that “we do not need ideologies of taxation” and asked that Spain “is a country more than to make it count.”
The president of Kearney Spain, Pedro Mateache , has stressed that the Spanish entrepreneurs differ from the rest by their courage and ability to overcome. Has been pointed as a negative aspect of the atomization of our tissue business, “which puts us at a disadvantage compared to other countries.” Therefore, it has requested that companies need to gain size with, for example, mergers. It has also been shown in favour of greater labour flexibility.

He also believes “fundamental” measures of labor market flexibility and “relevant,” the ERTE, a measure that should remain the basis for maintaining employment. Agreed with his colleagues that the legal security is fundamental and has asked us to support companies in their process of digital transformation.
The last to intervene has been Gonzalo Sanchez, president of PWC Spain, has underlined that “we must not get carried away by the short-termism” and that the long-term measures, such as those proposed by the EU, “must be consensus”. Has been said that “adolecemos of a tax system attractive to attract investments,” and that, although there is a lot of liquidity in the markets, missing projects.
